Teachers strike (update)

Post by GD on Mon 17 May 2010, 7:51 pm

JERSEY’S teachers have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action over their long-running pay and conditions dispute.
Almost 70 per cent of members of the NASUWT union voted in favour of striking, with 86 per cent voting in favour of industrial action short of a strike. (from JEP)

Surely this problem has got to be solved. the damage that could be caused to childrens education by this action is not worth thinking about...

Other workers joined teachers on a protest march last month

TEACHERS will launch industrial action – including a one-day strike – within three weeks.
Jersey’s biggest teaching union, the NASUWT, has announced that its members will start an indefinite period of industrial action on 11 June. They will hold their first strike day on 17 June.
Teachers will begin the action by refusing to carry out lunchtime and morning break supervision – but have vowed that the action will escalate unless the dispute is resolved.
They have also warned that teachers could be in an all-out strike during the next school year from September. (from JEP)
